"We don't even care whether or not we care"

I saw this turtle today after leaving the Y. I asked it to smile and this is what I was given. There's a river on one side of the drive and a swamp/pond on the other side so aside from cars and photographers traveling past, I'd say it leads a pretty content life.

Perrin's Landing

Perrin's Landing is a small place just down the road on Lake Leelanau. There's a boat access, a restaurant and a small community of houses nearby. On 'Gut Rot' Wednesday's you can get a hot dog, or a hamburger, for $1.25. It is also home to one of the best reuben sandwiches I've ever had.

It wasn't until recently, within the last few months, that I found out that there's a road named after my Grandma King's side of the family (Leckrone was her maiden name and the house/farm she grew up on is still there!). So I drove out to see where this was the other day. It's a fun adventure checking out the area because it's not too far from where my grandpa is from so regardless of where I am there's a certain joy in wandering past the same hills, trees and sights that my grandparents did in their formative years. A surprise came in the form of this metal sculptures of scooter riders I saw while traveling down Leckrone Road.

Moon Light

The moon was pretty bright last night and I was having fun with the interesting light. My buddy was having a bonfire at the same time so it added some nice light to the scenes.

Wind trees

In between Lansing and Mount Pleasant along U.S. 127 are these trees that have always been fun to look at as I drive past. It seems like I remember someone saying there was a powerful burst of wind that caused the trees to lean the way they do.

American Legion Post 106

This tank (as well as a plane and missile) have been part of the Grayling, MI scene for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I remember passing the tanks and plane near the American Legion Post 106 while my family would drive past as we headed toward I-75. Over the years they have become so familiar. They have seemingly shrunk from how I remember them. I'm sure it's not because I've grown up, I'm positive they've shrunk. I told myself that one day I'd pull over and take photos of them so the other day I did. As I was taking photos of one of the tanks these two boys began playing on them.
